Cavalier of Geneva is well known for distribution of cigars in Europe. They also have a USA Exclusive line. The wrapper is smooth with the signature gold diamond stamp. The cold draw is perfect.
The initial flavor profile is medium bodied with earthy and some light citrusy notes. The retohale is smooth. The light grey ash looks solid at this point and the burn is even.
In the first third the flavor profile picks up a bit of pepper, as does the retohale. The ash remains solid and the burn remains even.
During the second third the flavor profile remains steady. The retohale has developed more pepper. The ash is solid, although I tapped off more than an inch (didn’t want ash in my lap). The burn remains even.
Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains steady and smooth. The retohale remains smooth with pepper notes. The ash remains solid and the burn remains even.
Overall a solid cigar with a nice complexity and excellent construction. 9.3/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
